Yay for Tuesday!

Have you noticed a theme on my blog every Tuesday? Tuesday's are "new digital kit release day" @ two peas. I've been a 2peas Digital Designer for 5 weeks now and am loving every minute of it. I think that I found my passion in designing. It's something I really enjoy.

This week I released two Scalloped Cardstock packs for you. They come in rich Fall colors in both square and circle backgrounds.

I also have 2 new templates for you. Here's No. 8 in my Simple Starts series and No. 3 in my WhiteSpace series.



As always, I would love to hear what you are looking for in digital kits. I want to create kits that are useful and exciting to you.

I'll leave you with a layout that I made awhile back but didn't get a chance to post here on my blog.

Supplies: Erica Hernandez - Letter Template No. 1. Betsy Tuma Happy Go Lucky - Bliss. Jen Allyson - Spot Color Journal Stamps. Meredith Fenwick - Roughed up Alpha. Font Century Gothic.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

it's over....

...the worst of my gall bladder experience that is. I had my surgery a week ago last Friday and am feeling much better after a week of recovery. I won't lie, it was painful, much more painful than I was anticipating actually. I really thought that after 4 invasive c-sections this laparoscopic surgery would be a walk in the park. Yeah, well, not so much. ;) Anyway, I won't complain. It's done and I'm healing so...yay! Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers!

I realized I didn't post my mid-month Two Peas Garden Girl layouts yet so I thought I'd share today. :)

Tuesday = NEW kits :)

I am loving Tuesdays - especially THIS Tuesday. I have 3 new releases in my store, my surgery is over and I am feeling much better! It was a rough few days but I am on my way to a full recovery. I even ate some pizza last night without stomach pain. Does it get any better than that? ;)

Here are the new kits in my store this week....

ack! computer crash...

Yesterday I got the blue screen of death. After several hours of attempting to do system restores at many different points....I gave in and did a full system restore and wiped my computer. Right now I am trying to load my backup files and re-install all of my software. Not a fun task BUT thank goodness I've been keeping regular backups of everything. phew. So a friendly reminder - back up your files!!! I cannot stress that enough. I've had several crashes and have been very fortunate.

This past Tuesday,  I released Simple Starts No. 7 and my very first paper pack - Embossed Dots. you can find all of my previous templates here in my 2peas store. I'm very excited to start creating paper/embellishment kits along with my templates. If there's anything in specific you would like to see, make sure to let me know. I'd love to hear your ideas. :)

Tomorrow is my "long awaited" gall bladder surgery. I have mixed emotions I suppose. I don't want to have to go through the surgery and recovery but I do want to start feeling better. It's a bit of a catch 22. ;)

I probably won't be updating my blog again until the middle/end of next week. Make sure to take a peek at the 2peas digital store next Tuesday. I will have 3 new releases-  the first two of a new line of templates called "Whitespace" and a new mini kit called "Sugar & Spice".

I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week and a refreshing weekend! :)

Andrew Update

Supplies: Jen Allyson Spot Color - Cool Colors Elements, Stickers, Papers 1, 2 & 3. Font - 2peas Champagne. 2peas Sept. Super Sketch.

My sweet little man. It's hard to believe he was ever that tiny. He is now a few short months away from turning 3 years old.  

I just realized that it's been awhile since I posted an update on Andrew. For those of you not familiar with his condition - he is a cranio kid (craniosynostosis), which was surgically corrected when he was 4 months old. He has been recently diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder. He is doing well. He is making quite a bit of progress with his speech. He continues to learn signs for words that he has difficulty with. We now have speech therapy once a week, occupational therapy once a month and a nutritionist also comes to visit once a month. He has grown much more social and enjoys activities at church and with other children. No luck yet on the potty training front. ;)

On the scrapping front.....I have been a busy woman. I am busy making projects for 2peas and designing my own digital kits and templates for my new store. It's been such a fun learning process. Can I just say - Photoshop is incredible! There is just so much to learn. For me, that's the fun part of it all. I love to get to that "a-ha!" moment where everything just clicks. This Tuesday I will be releasing Simple Starts Template No. 7 and a new paper kit called Embossed Dots. *hint* Do you like the paper that I used in the Sweet Baby layout for this week's 2peas Digital Weekly Challenge? ;)

Speaking of Tuesday, I am hosting the weekly digital chat at 2peas! Come join me at 1pm CST and we'll discuss the weekly challenge and just chit-chat for the hour!

Weekly Digital Challenge @ 2peas

This week it's my turn to host the Weekly Digital Challenge at Two Peas In a Bucket. I thought I'd share my challenge here especially since it is one that a "non-digi" scrapper could also participate in. :)

I love looking at the world around me for inspiration. For this week's challenge, I want you to look around your home. Find something that inspires you and create! It can be anything from the colors in your favorite sheet set to the pattern on a vase.

I used this ivory serving bowl for mine. I just love it. I made some of my own digitally embossed paper to mimick the dotted pattern on the rim of the bowl. I also took inspiration from the color scheme of the photograph.

Supplies: Queen of Quirk - Scrap Canvas #1, Hero Arts -  Papers in Hero Art's Colors and embossed dot paper - my own design. Photo by Susannah Waechter.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

If you play along, make sure to upload to the Two Peas in a Bucket gallery and check the box for Weekly Digital Challenge. You have one week to play. :)

Tuesday = new digital templates in the store :)

Okay, so I'm excited. Today is the second release of my digital template series, Simple Starts. You can now purchase no. 5 and 6. Each one is only $0.99 and you can find them here. (Hey Heather....no. 5 is especially for you.)

Next Tuesday, Simple Starts No. 7 will be released along with my first set of papers. I really think that you will like them.

I just realized that I never posted my Garden Seeds from the 1st of the month Garden release at 2peas.
